Internationally recognised expert and one of India's most distinguished economists, C.H. Hanumantha Rao has contributed immensely to a better understanding of India's economy. Often quoted over the years, his meticulously prepared research papers and analytical writings have enlightened students, senior researchers and policymakers alike. The present volume brings together author's papers on the three related themes, viz., Agricultural Growth, Farm Size and Tenure, and Rural Poverty Alleviation in India. Written over a period of four decades while the author worked at the Institute of Economic Growth, Delhi (1961-1992) and thereafter as an honorary professor, at the Centre for Economic and Social Studies (CESS), Hyderabad, they reflect the evolution of policies for agricultural development and rural poverty alleviation in India over this period. The 31 essays included in this book highlight author's approach and the position taken on these three major interrelated issues which are of continuing interest and concern in the current academic and policy discussions. Needless to say, here's an extremely useful book for students of Indian economy and a valuable guide for policymakers, researchers and economic analysts.
